Watch your red eared slider while they are feeding. Notice the way that their eyes focus on their food to the point where they are nearly cross-eyed? That is a signal when they are about to bite something. So when their eyes focus, that is when they are about to 'attack'.
Box Turtles are land turtles and mate on land and Sliders are water turtles and mate in the water, so this would never happen and if it did, they would not be able "procreate" (have young). A Red Eared Slider can only procreate with another Red Eared Slider but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Yellow Bellied Sliders. They probably wouldn't try to mate with any other kind of turtle, other than a similar species of water turtle like a Painted Turtle or maybe a Map Turtle. A Slider probably would not try to mate with a Soft Shell Turtle or a Snapping Turtle even though they live in the same water or any species of land turtle like a Box Turtle because they would not recognize it as a possible mate. When a Red Eared Slider tries to mate with a Yellow Bellied Slider, it is because its instincts are telling it that based on size, shape, and mating displays and behaviors, etc., it is another Red Eared Turtle. Interestingly, Red Eared Sliders and Yellow Bellied Sliders rages currently overlap and where they do there is a lot of unsuccessful mating going on between the two species but they cannot procreate. That is part of the "definition" of a separate species. There are very few species of land turtles in the Eastern Box Turtle's Range that it could mistake for another Box Turtle and try to mate with. For much of its range the only other land turtle around would be the Wood Turtle (AKA: Red Legged Turtle) and they are not very similar.
A Red Eared Slider Turtle will grow to be approximately 7-12 inches depending on gender. Females are often 10-12 inches (25-30.5 cm), while males are 7-9 inches (17.8-22.8 cm). A good website to checkout for more information on the Red Eared Slider Turtle is included in the related links.

Yes... all red ear slider turtles eat fish. The main factor is size. If your fish is bigger than your turtle... there's nothing to worry. But.. if your turtle is quite bigger than your fishes... be assured they are all going to end up their life being turtle poops... :P
A Painted Turtle can only "procreate" (have young) with another Painted Turtle but they have been known to "mate" (have sex) with Red Eared Sliders and Yellow Belly Sliders. They probably wouldn't try to mate with any other kind of turtle, other than a similar species of water turtle like maybe a Map Turtle. For instance, a painted Turtle probably would not try to mate with a Soft Shell Turtle or a Snapping Turtle (or any land turtle like a Box Turtle) because they would not recognize it as a possible mate. When a Painted Turtle tries to mate with a Slider, it is because its instincts are telling it that based on size, shape, and mating displays and behaviors, etc., it is another Painted Turtle. Interestingly, Red Eared Sliders and Yellow Bellied Sliders rages currently overlap and where they do there is a lot of unsuccessful mating going on between the two species but they cannot procreate. That is part of the "definition" of a separate species.
I am actually going to try this with my baby RES and my Male Green Anole, so I will let you know how it works out!
My guess it that it is not going to be a happy little turtle! I would recommend a MUCH larger tank or a fenced-in outdoor pond!
You shouldn't use Super Glue (or anything water soluble) . But, hot glue is okay if you're going to seal it after.
yes i just had 1 turtle and it kept going into the corner of the cage and looking at it self thinking it was another turtle so i got another and he didn't do that again and he was happier
If nothing is going in, nothing comes out. Have you provided an appropriate diet, and an appropriate habitat? Your turtle could also be constipated or you might not be able to find his 'waste'.
How old is your turtle? It could be that your turtle is going through brumation, which is like hibernation for reptiles. This usually occurs in early summer. During brumation, turtles' eating will slow quite a bit. This usually lasts for a couple of weeks. If your turtle starts acting strangely, though, I'd take it to the vet and get it checked out. Good luck!
yes, It is not going to be a decease it is not going to be a war. It will be global warming or A attack of another global specie
turtles walk so slow,you are going the same speed as the turtle.
because the Russians will attack America. and there will be another 911.

Turtles belong to the Order Testudines. To get more specific you're going to have to say which turtle you mean.
Do you think she is sick or about to die?
I belive that the pet turtle will not be walking like it always does and it wont be eating a lot so that's how you will know if its have babys or not.
i am going to say it will, based on the thought that springs to mind; 'why the hell would you leave a dead turtle in a tank???'
a turtle who beats a rabbit in a race because the rabbit thinks he is going to win so he takes a nap an the turtle does not give up, perseveres and wins.
They never did. The attack was unannounced.
Fallowing are the life Span of some different types of turtle: Box Turtle 123 yrs Snapping Turtle 57 yrs Green sea Turtle 80 yrs If you are going to get a turtle make sure you have time and love for it and proper care. Hope this helped! :-)
She's going through menopause.
Yes and no. It was to appear that he was going to attack Washington.
A badger kills Cinderpelt, but she knew she was going to die. Another one kills Sootfur, Sorreltail and Rainwhiskers' brother.
